La Garde-Adhémar
25, rue Pauline de Simiane26700 La Garde-Adhémar

A hilltop village of the Drôme Provençale region which is rated one of the «Most Beautiful Villages in France», La GardeAdhémar offers fine viewpoints and timeless strolls, with its fine cobbled surfaces and its «Jardin des Herbes» or botanical garden, which has «Remarkable Garden» status.Once upon a time … a castrum or fort was founded in the XIth century by the Adhémar family, on a rocky spur overlooking the Rhône Valley and the Valley of the Rieu. Today, this fortified village fascinates passers-by and mysteriously attracts them to wander its cobbled ways and arcaded alleys. There, they experience the charm of the white stones, and the church tower of the Église Saint-Michel reveals the delicate Romanesque architecture of the structure. From the church square, a small stairway leads to the Jardin des Herbes, an educational collection of medicinal plants, some arranged by species, set out on three terraces and with a view. An intimate and enchanting setting.

Après avoir arpenté le vieux village médiéval encore entouré de remparts, n'hésitez pas à vous rendre sur le parvis de l'église saint Michel admirer le panorama. Vous comprendrez pourquoi le castrum de « La Garde » fut édifié sur ce lieu dominant la Vallée du Rhône. Et à 2 km du village, découvrez le mythique site du Val des Nymphes.
